Sydney Laurence: Reflections of the Great Northwest explores the life and art of Alaska's foremost landscape painter. Although most well known for his depictions of Mount McKinley, the Aurora and scenes of snowy wilderness, Laurence spent a fair amount of time in Juneau and had a profitable business relationship with the Nugget Shop, one of Juneau's early curio shops.
